|River Crescent – just south of Perth Road|
Tonight I attended the latest committee meeting of River Crescent Residents’ Association, at which I gave an update on West End local matters, including the launch of WESHA, the success of WestFest and the forthcoming Blackness Fire Station Open Day.
We also discussed the need for 20mph zones in residential areas, an issue I am to be discussing with the City Council’s Head of Transportation tomorrow.
* Last night, I attended the Blackness Primary School Parent Council meeting at which, in addition to planning for the school’s fete on 11th June, we discussed a number of issues including the need for ‘zig zag’ no parking markings adjacent to the school. I have again raised this matter with the City Council’s Head of Transportation.
* Later last night, I attended the River Crescent Residents’ Association meeting. We had a useful discussion about a number of local matters including a local water leak issue (I have raised with Scottish Water), road safety locally and pathway access to the soon to be opened Riverside Nature Park.
* The Courier this morning published Dundee councillors’ allowances and expenses totals for 2010/11. My LibDem colleague Helen Dick and I again have the lowest claims, claiming no expenses at all and maintaining a salary cut that we have taken since April 2009.
Last night, I had the pleasure of speaking with the young people who attend the East 2 West youth group at the Bharatiya Ashram Dudhope Centre and also discuss funding issues with the group organisers.
Thereafter, I attended the latest River Crescent Residents’ Association meeting, at which I updated the group on a number of West End issues, including schools rebuilding projects, the Riverside Nature Park and on winter maintenance.
